RESOLUTION

This resolution is to allow the Town of Mexico to withhold a sum of $10,500.00 from the fee paid to the Village of Mexico for maintenance of town water lines which include fire hydrant flushing and valve exercising for 2018.

In place of paying the Village of Mexico for this service a Town of Mexico water commissioner appointed by the Town Board would perform this maintenance.

It is understood this is a trial period for 2018 ONLY.  Any continuance of this service beyond 2018 would need an updated Town/Village water agreement.

This agreement covers town water districts 1, 2 and 3.
